If you are a mom that loves to write, then starting your own blog is the best idea possible. Not only will you be doing what you love and sharing your experiences with other moms, but you will also be able to earn a considerable amount of money from your online freelance job. Of course, you cannot expect a huge income right away, but a good mom blog will definitely stand out in a short period of time and will easily attract readers and also partners for sponsored posts, ads, etc. However, to get back to the main theme, you first need to get your blog started. So, to help you, we bring you a few tips on how to create an awesome and inspiring mom blog.
Determine your blog’s topic
This may seem a bit confusing, as you obviously want to start a blog for moms. However, you have to take into consideration that there are hundreds or more mom blogs dedicated to mothers out there, which means that you need to create a blog that will stand out. That will best be done if you have a specific topic determined. For example, your niche can be related to working moms and how to organize everyday life, tips that can help single moms or advice that moms of teenage kids will find useful, or perhaps how to be both fashionable and comfortable as a busy mom. In any case, you shouldn’t worry too much that choosing a certain topic will make it impossible for you to write about other things that are important to mothers out there. Your determined niche will help your blog to start off, to make it visible to readers on online search engines but later on, you may even realize that another niche is better and simply navigate your writing towards that area.
Think of an interesting blog name
The second baby step in your blogging career is to name your blog. You may have thought about this before, but even so, you want to make sure that the name isn’t already taken. Additionally, a good personal domain name will help your blog rank higher when readers type in the relevant keywords in the search engine, which will make it easier for you to stand out and attract other moms to the blog. Therefore, you want something fun and catchy, which at the same time is unique and relevant. We can even say that you can think of your blog as your brand, meaning that you want to personalize it and have people choose your brand over others that offer similar content. Besides quality, the other key factor in achieving this goal is a good name. You want it to be relevant, to contain just a few words, and to be easily memorable and self-explanatory. Now that you know all of this, it’s time to brainstorm for some fun mom blog names.
Register your domain name and customize the blog
Once you have found the perfect name for your blog, you have to register the domain name, as this is your URL address. Once this is settled and you have also found the ideal platform and hosting where you will publish your online writing, it is time to customize the blog. This is mostly related to the visual aspects of it, which means choosing ideal colors, themes, images and photos, etc. You want the blog to represent you while at the same time being friendly and relevant to other moms. This also applies to the little description box you want to have on the first page. Another crucial part is to include a concise bio about yourself so that readers can get to know you. Finally, make sure that the blog is user-friendly in a way that readers can easily browse through it, and not get confused and give up on trying to read it.
At last, you have your blog alive and functioning, meaning that is time to start thinking about your future posts and readers. You want to create a friendly community and want moms to come back to your blog to read and comment on posts about your experiences as a mom, but also find advice, tips… Moreover, you want to finally earn money, which can be possible by including ads, writing sponsored posts, or selling products. It is best to contemplate which works best for you and your site, but if you are unsure, you can attend some useful online courses that will help you better understand blogging and how to make money from it.
To conclude, we can say that starting your mom blog can be a bit time-consuming but definitely pays off. Not only financially; sharing your experiences and thoughts with other moms will create a lovely community and make a close friends group around your blog. So, hesitate no more and get your laptop and your creativity working.
